Workers will perform assigned duties as instructed by their supervisor. The worker will walk down the aisles between the plants in the corn fields, for the purpose of detasseling seed corn, remove rogue plants, weeds and volunteer corn plants from seed corn production fields. In order to perform this kind of work must be able to work outside for at least six-6 hours a day in all kinds of weather and be in possession of the requisite strength and endurance, working quickly and skillfully with their hands. Detasseling corn: Workers must comprise the ability to interpret the difference between male and female seed plants. Workers are required to remove all tassels from female rows of corn at the minimum rate of 0.10 acres per hour. If a worker does not detassel at the minimum rate of 0.10 acres per hour they will slow down the productivity of other workers who will have to account for the ineffective workers? negligence. Also, a worker moving at a pace of less than 0.10 acres per hour will fail to meet the federal minimum wage standard. II is important to pull tassels in a timely fashion to avoid the production of pollen. If pollen is allowed to be produced the crop will be jeopardized. Tassels must be pulled straight out of the top of the corn plant, leaving all leaves with the plant. Workers are required to scan each row high and low to make certain all tassels are removed. In some fields, a cutter machine will cut the tips of the tassels from the female plants, followed by a puller machine that will go through and pull 40% – 85% of the tassels. Detasselers will then go through the fields to remove the remaining partial tassels that are not missed by the machine. Detasselers must remove 99. 7% – 100% of the tassels in the female rows to discourage a female corn plant from pollinating itself. Meaning that crews can only miss three (3) of every one-thousand (1,000) plants before the job is deemed complete. When a worker misses greater than three (3) tassels of every one thousand (1000) plants an inspector will deem the job a failure, requesting that workers re-inspect the field to confirm the removal of missed tassels. If the worker is not mindful and removes leaves unnecessarily, or does not entirely remove tassels the crop will be harmed. Consequently, if workers are not cognizant of the noted standards one must maintain to detassel com the crop will be damaged and adversely affect productivity.
